display of weakness. we are now seeing the fruits of this reckless rhetoric. this disaster, the obama administration can't get on the same page about whether or not we view egypt at this moment as an ally. watch this. >> you know, i don't think that we would consider them an ally. but we don't answer them an enemy. they are a new government that is trying to find its way. >> you are saying that the administration, state department, still regards egypt as a major non-nato ally and is a recipient of all that that entails? >> yes. >> sean: what is it? does the administration think that egypt is an ally or not? instead of answering, the white house talks in circles. when asked about the contradiction a spokesman said this, i think folks are reading way too much into this. ally is a legal term of art. and it all depends what "is" is. and we weren't having sex either. here with reaction, fox news contributor, our friend, charles krauthammer. welcome back. >> happy to be here. >> sean: i loved your line, we should have as the united states, told them to go straight to hell. we didn't. where
, this crisis turned political. on 9/11 no less. governor romney calls the u.s. response disgraceful, the obama campaign says they're shocked by his response. the mud slinging started before it was even kay break and before we knew how many u.s. officials had been killed. plus as president clinton stumps for president obama in florida, paul ryan releases new ads in his home state of wisconsin to keep his house seat. it's a busy day in political news, too. we'll try to cover it all. good morning from washington. it's wednesday, september 12th, this is the daily rundown. let's get to my first reads. a day that started with a campaign pause for sole almost remembrances on 9/11 endeded with violence abroad and mud slinging here at home. somebody and mitt romney were supposed to take a 24 hour break from campaign to go honest or the victims of 9/11 and pay tribute to american troops still fighting overseas particularly in afghanistan. but the truce didn't last long as a diplomatic crisis in north africa quickly turned political. the white house has confirmed this morning that u.s. ambassador to liby
. the news is breaking across the globe this hour as you see president obama at a re-election event in golden, colorado, screen right. screen left, and during his campaign remarks, he is expected to talk about what we're seeing on screen right. live pictures of cairo where angry protesters are staged outside of the american embassy again. they have been throwing bottles, there have been clashes all day, and we will continue to monitor the events there along with the president's comments. we'll have a live report from our chief white house correspondent ed henry on what we can expect from the in just a few minutes. in the meantime, u.s. diplomatic posts are on alert this hour. we have witnessed protests in yemen, iraq, egypt, tunisia, bangladesh and, of course, the attack on a u.s. consulate in libya that left four americans, including the u.s. ambassador, dead on the 11-year anniversary of 9/11. that attack first presumed to be linked somehow to a controversial film made by a private citizen in america that depicts the prophet muhammad in a negative light, but now authorities are investigatin
-millionaires who vote for republicans are like cows voting for burger king. barack obama is a lot like occupy wall street or the bible. i do think we're seeing that this year turned up to 11. there's a lot of folks out there who are social conservatives who are fighting really really hard to make sure that mitt romney gets another tax cut. so i thank you for the call. fox news to me is like for futal lords and the surfs that love them. roy is here on the "bill press show." good morning. >> caller: good morning. i think we have to keep in mind with occupy it's more than a slogan it's a process. the entire world in many languages is now aware of this imbalance of wealth is what we're really talking about. jl uh-huh. >> caller: i think it's a mistake to start getting into the minutia of the party that believes they can make the word move backwards instead of forwards. and that's what they are finding out. they want to turn back the clock. they want to undo 2008. the most pathological and impossible way of doing it. that's what they think they can live. mitt romney is still mad
foreign policy and protests in the middle east between governor romney and president obama. joining us is john dickerson of cbs. >> the long-standing tradition that in campaigns politics stops at the water's edge, senator van den berg's quote that may be a little bit outdated but romney jumped in so fast here that it was just kind of breaking with the normal tradition. but there is another point here which is i talked to a very senior military man last night who said first reports are always wrong. the reason you hold back for a minute is you just know the news is going to change. and in this case iting chad there were more deaths. and so romney's statement looked out of sync with the mourning and the shock that was going on when everybody woke up on wednesday morning. >> rose: we continue with a look at that and more with david brooks of "the new york times". and it underlines i think a problem with romney, which he is just not a philosophical guy. you know, the people who know him well like him. they say he's a good manager. he just doesn't have philosophical interests. >> rose: we c
this morning president obama said that ambassador chris stevens died a hero in two countries. more on the latest in the middle east in just a moment. right now i'm joined by heather hurlburt, executive director of the national security network and former speech writer for president bill clinton. re reza asian. phyllis bennis who directs the new barrier nationalism project at the institute for policy studies and zainab salbi founder of women for women international. it assists women survivors of war. the taliban are claiming responsibility for an attack on a british military base in afghanistan this morning that killed two u.s. marines. unlike previous attacks, this time the taliban says it was in response to the same anti-muslim film that set off a swell of violent protests in other parts of the region. libya, egypt, morocco, pakistan, algeria, kuwait, india, iraq just to name a few. in tunisia yesterday protesters breached the wall of the u.s. embassy where two people have died and 29 others have been hurt. in sudan, meanwhile, demonstrators got both the u.s. and german embassies
a statement in which he issued an apology to u.s. president barack obama and the american people for the attack on the embassy today, saying this was unacceptable and ordered yemeni security forces to launch an investigation and prosecute anybody they found involved in this to the full extent of the law. this was quite worrying today. for one reason, the u.s. embassy compound in sanaa is one of the most protected sites. not just in the city of s aanaa, the capital of yemen, but practically in all of the country of yemen. i've been to yemen several times, been to sanaa several times. i've been to the u.s. embassy. this site is not easily accessible to anybody. i spoke to activists in sanaa who said they were watching what was going on from rooftops of nearby buildings. they say they were absolutely shocked that this crowd, marching toward the embassy, was able to get as close as they did to the main gate and then that they were actually able to breach the compound. they were flabbergasted by this. they can't understand how yemen security could allow this to happen. in the ensuing
. spotlight on virginia. both president obama, mitt romney campaigning there over the last hour, duelling campaign events. romney held a veterans for romney event in springfield, talking about the need to keep america's military strong. >> i happen to subscribe to ronald reagan's maxim that peace comes through strength. i want to have a military that so strong no one wants to test it. [ applause ] and there's a long-term threat to our military capability, and to our national security, and it relates to something that fuels and builds our military. and that's our economy. you have to have a strong economy. >> president obama was rallying supporters in virginia beach. that was a couple minutes ago. he talked about creating opportunities for everybody. >> we don't believe anybody is entitled to success in this country. we don't believe government should help folks who aren't willing to try to help themselves. but we do believe in something called opportunity. we do believe in a country where hard work pays off, where responsibility is rewarded, where everyone gets a fair shot and everybody i
: i believe president obama gave a statement yesterday where he said it would work with the libyans to bring the people who attacked the embassy to justice. u.s. marines are going to the embassy in tripoli, but that is window dressing. i think the libyan government pose a real desire for america to be engaged in libya. i am sure there will be an effort to track the group behind the attack. libya is facing a similar challenge to morsi. libyans are devout muslim people. in fighting gaddafi, many happen to be more hard-core islamic fighters. i think the libyan officials in government are struggling with that. their tendency is to blame events like the death of ambassador stevens on gaddafi loyalists. that is probably the case. host: thank you for your time this morning. we appreciate it. from the washington post, a florida pastor is asked to withdraw film backing. what should the u.s. response be? patty on the republican line. caller: i think we should -- i do not think we should apologize. this is just a ridiculous move to blame a silly little film. the president goes out and apologiz
's going on here? >> the media screwed up and the government -- i mean the obama administration and what they said distorted the story. >> that's true. this is the thing most concerning. president obama kept spinning it as though this was a spontaneous protest. frankly, i think that's a better -- it gives them more of an umbrella of protection to say this was spontaneous. >> political protection. >> yes, than to admit it was clad inspired assassination of an american ambassador. that's difficult to talk about. then questions come up, why didn't we know about it? why didn't we stop it? >> one of the most underappreciated adds speblgts of the story and you alluded to it is how moderate muslims have really stepped up and made their voices heard in this entire scenario. i mean, i won't speak for the other three on the panel by any stretch, but for me, this is the first time that i have seen images of moderates holding up signs, we love you, america. this is not who we are. please forgive us. god bless chris stevens and for anybody to say because what's happened is all doom and gloom, i'm thi
obama went to cairo after he became united states, and he gave a speech that was an outreach to muslim and apologetic from the united states. his theory if i am nice to the people of middle east they will be our friend. here is a snippet of that. >> i come to cairo to seek a new beginning between the united states and muslim. one based on mutual about and mutual respect and based on the truth that america and islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition . >> brian: we knew that and how is that going. charles weighed in last night. >> we are seeing the melt down and collapse of the obama policy on the muslim world. the irony that it began in cairo at the same place in which he made the speech in which hemented a new beginning and implying other presidents particularly bush, there was a lack of mutual respect which was an insult to the united states and which had gone to war six times on behalf of muslims and kuwait and bosra, iraq and tan stan and elsewhere. so to imply that we somehow had mistreated the muslim which was the premise of his speech and how the iraq war inflamed
. >> on the campaign trail, 53 days, polls today show president obama pulling ahead in critical battleground states. and move over, david gregory's got his own gangnan style. >> side to side right after this. ♪ >>> good day. i'm andrea mitchell, live in washington. joining us, chris elissa managing editor of post politics.com and chuck todd, chief white house correspondent, political director and host of "the daily run down" here on msnbc. chuck, to you and you chris, the foreign policy debate this week that we've seen mitt romney coming out while the state department is still trying to identify bodies, notify next of kin with a sharp attack, didn't have his facts right and a lot of criticism about that, but now also criticism from republicans of not laying out his foreign policy vision and criticism of the president. where did he follow up with the arab spring? how has he handled all this? a foreign policy debate in a campaign that's been all about the economy. >> by the way, we know what's striking about hearing mccain say this, he did it out of frustration, our producer was saying there were c
phone call from president obama wednesday night. according to those accounts, chastened egyptian officials then scrambled to defuse the volatile situation. today, reuters reported that u.s. intelligence officials had concerns after clips of the offending movie, "the innocence of muslims," were first broadcast saturday in egypt. but white house officials said there was no advance warning of what was coming. meanwhile, in libya, the president of the national assembly visited the charred ruins of the u.s. consulate in benghazi, where ambassador chris stevens and three colleagues died tuesday. >> ( translated ): i want to offer my thanks to ambassador stevens. i want to thank him and to thank the american people who gave birth to such special diplomats. >> brown: the bodies of the four slain americans were repatriated today outside washington at joint base andrews. >> let light perpetual shine on chris, sean, glen and tyrone. >> brown: ambassador stevens and state department officer sean smith were brought home with two former navy seals who'd been detailed to protect stevens, tyrone
. and president obama had a pointed answer on egypt in an interview last night with spanish-language telemundo. >> i don't think that we'd consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy. they are a new government that's trying to find its way. they were democratically elected, and we need to see how they respond to this incident. in some cases, they've said the right things; in some, they've taken steps not aligned with our interests. >> woodruff: morsi spoke with mr. obama last night and asked for action against the maker of the inflammatory video, titled "the innocence of muslims." >> ( translated ): i called him in order to ask him to put an end to such behavior. and of course, we assured president obama that we will be keen and we will not permit any such event, any such occurrence in our country against the embassy territories in the future. >> woodruff: today, in washington, secretary of state clinton called the video "disgusting and reprehensible." >> it appears to have a deeply cynical purpose, to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage. but as i said yesterday, ther
blunt phone call from president obama to morsi calling for bold action to protect u.s. personnel on the ground. this included televised appearances by him for muslims to protect the guests in their country and a statement released by the muslim brotherhood which they urged muslims to form a human chain around any embassy that might come under attack in their respective countries. my colleagues at pentagon, justin and jennifer griffin confirmed a marine f.a.s.t. team is on the ground in the yemeni capital sanaa as a precautionary measure. once again a loud plume of smoke is reported to be emanating from fires inside our embassy in tunisia and gunshots have been reported both there and as there near the u.s. embassy in sudan. busy day for officials in the state department and around the world. jon. jon: looks like a bad situation. we'll keep an eye on it. james rosen at the state department. jenna: let's show you a little bit what james has mentioned. we'll show you a few key areas today. that is what yemen looks like. that is where according to our reports a marine unit is being s
, barack obama saying that he doesn't really consider egypt an ally or an enemy at this point, that it really is time will tell, this is a work in progress. that really is kind of a stunning change of position from the white house perspective. >> reporter: i think that that statement took many people by surprise and shocked them a great deal. part of the anti-u.s. sentiment, and there is an anti-u.s. sentiment in the clashes today and in the protests on tuesday and in the various countries where the protests are taking plaes, the u.s. has been -- egypt has been a major ally for the u.s. to the extent that five different u.s. administrations supported our dictator, mubarak. i think the white house realized, because over the past few minutes i've been reading statements, the white house realized what a shocking statement that was and it looks like they're trying to back pedal from this idea that egypt has been demoted as an ally. i think everybody right now feels how sensitive the situation is and understands this political jockeying for power and again to reiterate, it's -- the
